Awesome views and nice food but dressing on salads was way too much; it would have been nice if they would have put it on the side. Also the choices for sides are very limited as they only give you three selections to pick two.

We always go in the winter and check out the city, especially the Bentlyville view, and have a meal. Our food has always been good. It is priced fair, but on the higher end of Duluth restaurants.

Rotating restaurant with great views and that's it. Tired interior,slow service, overcooked Walleye with way too much salt. 3rd visit and will not be back. Was great about 10 years ago but that ship has sailed.

Go for the view. Food is overpriced and average at best; gloppy fettuccine, dry salmon. Diner-level staff are a bit clueless. Nice ambiance.

Stopped in for drinks and appetizers. The view is the best in town. Our server, Lincoln was very knowledgeable about the surroundings, and gave us great recommendations on cocktails. Everything was a pure delight.
